Using Inner Conflict on Stage

 “Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way” – Charles Bukowski (poetry and fiction writer)

In IMPROV, when the state of play becomes quicksand, we must pull ourselves out of the muck, step back, and re-evaluate our scene and who we are in it. Consider the following questions when improvising: Am I supporting my scene partner? Why am I feeling disconnected? If there is conflict going on inside your mind, it will probably reveal itself to the audience. So, why not use that inner conflict on stage?
